'Skygarden' designed by Marcel for Flos, has won the award for best lighting this year at the 6° edition of the prestigious Elle Decoration International Design Awards (EDIDA). The event was marked with a memorable video of Marcel creating a three dimensional haiku and some playful shenanigans with Piero Gandini, president of Flos lighting.
'In my former house I had a fabulous antique decorated plaster ceiling. I called it my Skygarden, it always looked good even without me having green fingers or taking care of it very well. It didn't need water or sun but would live only on the warm rays of the electrical light under it. I loved it so much that by the time I moved houses I could not leave it. I had to find a way to take it to my new home.I took my tools and stole it from the ceiling. This fabulous piece of history is now secretly hidden in a minimalist architectural sphere in the heart of my new home where I can enjoy it with friends. If you tell no-one, I can share it with you'.The Skygarden is available from Flos in opal gold, matt white, matt black & rust and in two sizes.
